Earlier this month, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia SchoolNet Namibia, a volunteer-driven organisation that is working to see all Namibian schoolchildren get access to a computer and the internet, was awarded the APC Africa Hafkin Communications Prize for people-centred information and communications technology (ICT).

Why not contact SchoolNet Namibia, if you would like to help some of the 56 million functioning computers that end up in landfill dumps each year to be put to good use before they die?

SchoolNet are in the process of setting up collection points across Europe and will be shipping second hand computers out to Namibia, approximately 400 at a time... with a bit of tender loving care many computers can be given a fresh lease of life and subsequently used to help teach Namibian students a range of useful and valuable skills...
